Background: I have spent almost my entire working career trying to raise aspirations and increase skills among the younger generations. Previously working for Aim Higher and Widening Participation through Next Steps South West, before joining the Careers Hub helping schools strategically working towards the Gatsby Benchmarks. Now I try to engage young people into STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) by using space and the first UK launch as a hook.
Why did you join the group?
I am keen to join up with other like-minded businesses to try and support positive change in the county.
